Rep. Ogles introduces 'Let Trump Speak Act' to ban gag orders on defendants put forward by House GOP

By Jamie Joseph

FIRST ON FOXRep. Andy Ogles is introducing the "Let Trump Speak Act" on Thursday to prohibit judges from issuing gag orders to defendants, like former President Donald Trump, in any criminal or civil proceeding. 

"We have watched for years as a politically weaponized Department of Justice and Democrat activist judges have gone after President Donald J. Trump," the Tennessee Republican told Fox News Digital. "There is no right more sacred to Americans than the right to speak freely, as guaranteed in the First Amendment."

Ogles, a strong Trump ally, added that "activists within the justice system are attempting to strip President Trump of this right for the sake of their own political agenda."
